SOS #188: TP or Not TP

It's Tuesday, and time for a new challenge. This week's title of TP or Not TP should give you a hint of what we're up to. :) Yes, we're talking about toilet paper!  Did you ever look closely at the pattern on your TP or paper towels? Some of them are very nice. So this week we ask you to do one of the following three things:
  • Be inspired by the pattern on your toilet paper or paper towels
    - OR-
  • Use toilet paper or paper toweling as a tool to make your project
    - OR -
  • Use toilet paper or paper toweling ON your project
and please make sure to tell us what you did, as it's not always obvious to us! 

Here is how the gals have interpreted this challenge:

created with Paper Towel paper. 

I stamped on a piece of TP, cut it out, and glued it to my card.
I inked & embossed TP for the corners, and did TP casting to make the heart
I used the quilty pattern on my plain white paper towels (seen behind my card!) as inspiration for a textural background made of punched and sewn cardstock border strips.  
used real toilet paper and a fake roll
adhered TP to a piece of card stock and then embossed it with inked folder
I tried to replicate the pattern on the TP by scoring every 1/8th inch and embossing it with the mosaic embossing folder.

I added blending solution to a paper towel and quickly blotted it on the dress. The paper towel pattern left behind a cool denim look. 

Now it's YOUR turn! Go take a gander at your TP or paper towels and pay attention to the pattern, or otherwise use TP or paper toweling to make your project. Then come back here and link us up below so we can stop by and see what you've made!

The link-up will be open until Monday, February 16th, at 11:55 pm EST. Please limit your total number of challenges to 13, including ours.

Haha - great idea for a challenge and great ideas from the DT. I obviously am using the wrong quality of toilet paper as mine is just plain , but I will try to come up with something if I get time.
